Few schools have dominated the local hoops recruiting scene like Memphis has.
Still, there's no way to know for sure that you are getting a kid until he makes it public.
During a monday morning press conference at Memphis (Tenn.) East, 6-foot-6 wing Nick King confirmed what many had long suspected. The No. 23 player in the land will stay home to play for Josh Pastner and the Tigers.
A well built wing who has a balanced inside and out game, King is a four-star prospect who can play a variety of roles for the Tigers.
On the wing, he is a patient and strong player who makes enough jumpers to keep defenders honest, rebounds and is an excellent passer.
Because of his strong 215 pound frame, King can also play a bit on the interior. Perhaps a little undersized when he plays the four, King is a crafty low post player who is effective with both hands around the rim.
King is the second local four-star wing from the class of 2013 to announce that he'll be playing for his hometown school. Just a few weeks ago, shooting guard Markel Crawford announced he would be staying home.
